Call for Contributions: Towards Realizing the 2030 Agenda in the Built Environment

The SDGs are a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

Concordia University (Canada) et al, are calling for contributions to a new book about the built environment.  The book will feature insights from scholars and practitioners from an assortment of fields that uncover the role the construction and real estate sectors play in attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It follows a lifecycle-based approach to the topic, addressing design, construction, management, investment, and regulatory dimensions of projects in the area. It aims to expand the reader’s understanding of the built environment beyond the design and construction phases. This interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach also puts into perspective the interconnected nature of the SDGs and highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder collaborations in achieving them. The co-editors encourage authors to critically assess the scalar relevance – at the local, regional, national, and supranational levels – of their contributions.

You are invited to submit abstracts of no more than 500 words, a bibliography for the proposed chapter, and a CV. Abstract submissions are expected by January 31st, 2022. Submissions should be sent via email to 2030Agenda_builtenv@aucegypt.edu
